"All "behavioral" or psychological disorders are neurologically based. "

Sorry, but this is reductionistic nonsense. This type of thinking is part of what makes "mental health" so destructive - it reduces people and their psychosocial issues to nothing more than errant neurotransmitters.

Unfortunately, things like depression and anxiety are not as easily seen on fmris. Our technology is not yet that advanced.

LOL, then how do doctors know anyone has them?! Other than the superficial symptoms, that is.

Or did I miss the news report on how oncologists and cardiologists can suddenly diagnosis leukemia and atherosclerosis by simply looking at people?

It's not all neurologically based. Personality disorders are usually reactions to the environment. If you want to get technical, EVERYTHING is neurologically based, though. Every ray of light that enters your eye creates a chemical reaction within and in between your neurons.
